(Former) Bulls Abroad: Andrew Jean-Baptiste called up for Haiti's October friendlies

AJB is still in Haiti's international soccer plans.

As has been the case pretty much since this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup, Andrew Jean-Baptiste has won a call-up to Haiti's national team.

Formerly of the New York Red Bulls, AJB reportedly has signed for Spanish club CD Alcala, currently in the fourth tier of Spain's soccer pyramid. He remains uncapped by Haiti, but he does keep getting called into the squad. One of these days, he will surely get a senior international appearance.

Les Grenadiers' head coach Marc Collat has only named 18 players to the roster for the team's upcoming October friendlies.

Perhaps AJB's international debut will come on October 9 against El Salvador in Houston, or on October 13 when Haiti faces Guatemala in Guatemala City.

The team had been scheduled to play Trinidad and Tobago in a playoff for a berth in 2016's Copa America Centenario, but continuing doubt over the future of that tournament has caused those plans to be shelved for the moment.

Haiti and AJB are now free to focus on November's CONCACAF World Cup qualifying games, for which the October friendlies will serve as important preparation.
